“This table seems pretty good to me!”
Where can I get the best Reiki table?
For more info on the factors you want to consider, see my guide to How to Find the Best Reiki Table for You.
Many new practitioners look on Amazon or go directly to the manufacturers’ websites.
You can also search Craigslist and see if anyone is selling a used portable Reiki table.
How much does a portable Reiki table typically cost?
Again, it really depends on which brand you go with and how concerned you are with factors like the weight of the table, the quality of the metal or wood of the legs, etc., etc. You can find a cheap Reiki table from $150 on up, whereas the more expensive, higher-quality Reiki tables start at $450 and go up from there. If you are a new Reiki practitioner just starting out with your Reiki practice, I think spending around $150-$300 is a good range for a table that will work for you.
What’s the difference between a portable Reiki table and a massage table?
They are not that different, although Reiki tables are designed with the intention the Reiki Master or practitioner will be sitting during the healing treatment more than a massage therapist would. Therefore, portable Reiki tables have table braces and areas for your legs to be. Also, since Reiki practitioners do not manipulate a client’s head the way massage therapists do, many portable Reiki tables do not have adjustable headrests.
What working height should I look for in my Reiki table?
Most Reiki tables are about 23 to 33 inches. This table range fits Reiki practitioners who are between five and six feet. For those taller Reiki masters (of which there are many!) you will probably want to choose the “long legs” option that allows the height to go up to 36 inches.
How long will it take if I order my portable Reiki table online?
While the answer to this question surely varies depending on which table you choose, many Amazon suppliers will ship your Reiki table to you within three business days. If you need to order a Reiki table that isn’t in stock, or need a customized table, these obviously may take longer.
What are the best brands of Reiki tables?
The portable Reiki table brands most widely-used by Reiki masters and practitioners are the EarthLite, BestMassage and Sierra Comfort Reiki tables. EarthLite tables have wood legs and a wooden frame, which can help ground your clients and give them a deeper connection with the Earth. (Hence the name?)
I like the EarthLite Reiki table. But do I really need a flexible headrest?
Join the club! I love Earthlite too, but wondered if I truly needed a flexible headrest. Honestly, it depends on a few factors, such as your finances, what your intentions are with your Reiki practice, and so forth. I have no regrets because I love EarthLite Reiki tables so much.
If you are tight on money (or green energy as I like to think of it), a flexible Reiki table headrest may not be on the top of your priority list. Perhaps your money would be better spent starting your own Reiki website and offering Reiki sessions to local clientele. Then, when you have the financial means, you can get a higher-quality table.
Or, if you are buying a portable Reiki table mainly just to practice on family and friends, you may not need all the ‘extras’ like a portable headrest right off the bat. (Hey, your family is already receiving the benefits of Reiki treatments! They’re not doing too shabby…)
However, if you are serious about opening up your own private Reiki practice, and plan to see multiple clients each week, investing in a flexible Reiki table headrest may be well worth it. In addition to being more comfortable, you can adjust a flexible headrest vertically as well as horizontally.
How much weight will a portable Reiki table hold?
While each brand differs, EarthLite Reiki tables (can you tell I love these tables!?) are manufactured to hold over 1,000 pounds.
